WASHINGTON –Dr. Stanley C. Bond, Jr. has been named chief archeologist of the National Park Service. Bond, currently the superintendent of Kennesaw Mountain National Battlefield Park in Georgia, will start his new position in mid-August.

The NPS Archeology Program promotes the identification, evaluation, documentation, conservation, protection, and interpretation of archeological resources in national parks and affiliated areas. It also collaborates on projects with other federal and public archeology programs.

“National parks contain some of the most significant archeological sites and collections found in the country,” said National Park Service Associate Director of Cultural Resources Stephanie Toothman. “Dr. Bond will continue the legacy of responsible management of the archeological resources found in parks.”

“The archeologists and other cultural resource staff of the National Park Service are second to none,” said Bond. “I look forward to working with these exceptional professionals and being part of the agency’s broad commitment to preserving and interpreting America’s special places.”

Bond has worked on prehistoric and historic archeological sites throughout the east, southeast, Caribbean, and Hawaii. He has been an archeologist for the Historic St. Augustine Preservation Board and the U.S. Army Environmental Center and an adjunct instructor at Flagler College in Florida.

Bond has also served as the integrated resources manager for Kaloko-Honokohau National Historical Park in Hawaii and superintendent of the Juan Bautista de Anza National Historic Trail in California and Arizona. Bond received the Trish Patterson Student Conservation Association Award for Natural Resource Management in a Small Park in 2001.

A native of Beaufort, South Carolina, Bond earned a B.A. in Anthropology and a B.Sc. in Geology from the University of Alabama and a M.A. and Ph.D. in Anthropology from the State University of New York at Albany. His dissertation, titled "Tradition and Change in First Spanish Period (1565-1764) St. Augustine, Florida Architecture: A Search for Colonial Identity," examined the role town planning and architecture played in the development of New World Spanish colonial identity.
